Sprout Yoga is a non profit I started to coordinate conversations between yoga teachers who want to volunteer to teach people with eating disorders and/or post traumatic stress disorder and people working on overcoming those diseases.
When I started teacher certification training, I knew I wanted to work with people overcoming eating disorders and possibly with women in domestic violence shelters. I heard so many of my fellow students say that they would LOVE to help teach veterans, people with eating disorders and others (including people in recovery) that I thought to myself… say, what does a burned out corporate attorney who used to be a grassroots organizer do with this kind of information? Why, get started organizing of course!
